Another Silhouette Giveaway

Sorry for all the giveaway posts. I just really, really, really with whip cream and cherries on top, want to win this Silhouette Machine!

So I guess if I want it so bad, I should give you the opportunity to win it too. Cause that's what a nice person would do. A nice person who has to blog about it to get an extra entry....

#1 - Make an entire wedding out of paper flowers

I haven't done this yet, but I got pretty close yesterday. I did wedding flowers for a really cute couple and they let me do paper flowers in the bouquets and centerpieces. I loved how everything turned out.

#13 - Become known for my pie-making skills

March 6, 2011 will go down in history as the day I baked my first pie. From scratch. None of this sissy pre-made crust or filling-in-a-can stuff. I'm talkin' apple-slicin', sugar-moundin, butter-poundin', crust-chillin', pre-baked snackin' goodness. My mom helped, of course. It was my first time.

It was delicious. The crust was my favorite. I'm sure the butter-flavored shortening had something to do with that. Next time, I'm going to do a crust with all butter. I loved how it looked too, kind of rustic and imperfect. Quite vintage actually. I snapped a few photos on my mom's spanky new phone.

So here's to becoming known for my pie skills. It's going to be a tasty, tasty ride.

golden AND delicious
hand-sliced. with love (that's the key)
handsome crust.
i'm loving those little star cuts.
